Multihull Solutions recorded its best ever sales results at the recent Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show with a hugely successful launch of the new range of Iliad Catamarans.

The company unveiled the innovative new line of power catamarans at the show with the international launching of the ILIAD 50 at VIP event on the Friday evening.

Five minutes before the ribbon was cut to launch the stunning vessel, the boat was officially sold to buyers from Brisbane who were immediately impressed by the ILIAD 50's design, space and quality.

In the following days, Multihull Solutions also took orders on two more ILIAD 50 catamarans from buyers on both the east and west coast of the country. The company is expecting to finalise two additional ILIAD 50 orders after sea trials and contract negotiations in early June.

There are also now a number of buyers working with the ILIAD design team to finalise orders on ILIAD 50, 60 and 70 models for delivery over the next two years.

Fountaine Pajot's range of sail and power catamarans were also extremely popular at the show with contracts now being finalised on boats across the range. Multihull Solutions sold an MY44 power catamaran and is finalising a contract on another MY44, while there are post-show contracts being finalised on sailing catamarans including Lucia 40s, an Astrea 42, the NEW 45, the Saona 47, the NEW 60 and the stunning new Alegria 67.

Multihull Solutions expects to have all contracts and orders form the boat show finalised by the end of the financial year with a value exceeding AUD$25 million.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said the response to the new ILIAD Catamarans range was extremely exciting.

"We knew this new brand was going to shake up the power industry, but we are thrilled to see it have such immediate impact," Mark said.

"It's great to see the industry embrace the ILIAD concept so enthusiastically, and the range truly complements our MY 37, MY 40 and MY 44 motor yacht range from Fountaine Pajot."

ILIAD Catamarans allows buyers to truly personalise their boat to a luxurious standard at a price that challenges the world's production and semi-production power cat models.

The innovative new shipyard has developed a fleet of long-range, semi-custom catamarans that gives clients the freedom to affordably tailor their own layout, timber finishes, electronics package, luxurious fabrics, engine options and more, so their boat truly reflects their unique needs and personal style.

The Iliad Catamarans range includes the Iliad 50, Iliad 60, Iliad 70 and Iliad 90, each delivering outstanding performance for offshore use and ocean passages with some of the longest range capabilities in their market segment (2000nm-60000nm).

The product of years of rigorous research and development, Iliad Catamarans boast the design expertise of renowned naval architect Riccardo Bulgarelli who worked in Italy for many years for some of the world's leading shipyards before establishing his own design office in China. Bulgarelli has successfully designed and project-managed the build of many exclusive custom vessels as large as 112ft for export to the world market.
